Some limit is being hit and I'm not sure what it is. I have a support request into Google and hope to have an answer back in a day or two.

Thanks,

I have encountered a new issue in my group (https://groups.io/g/SecondSaturdayAlteredBookGroup) when I go to the member address and phone book database I get an error.
" Groups.IO says
Geocode was not successful for the following reason:
OVER_QUERY_LIMIT"
It displays a partial map of the general region (South East) with indicators for the location of the addresses in the address book. But nothing on the page works and the information is not in table format

Not sure what this means or why it's happening. But it is new, so I am wondering if it has something to do with the new google Maps table view and table export
Any thoughts?

Awesome! thanks.

Hi All,

I have restored the option to export a database in csv format, in addition to json format. Also, the exports automatically download now.

Thanks,
Mark

I have to agree, removing csv format is not a great idea

Mark,
I agree with Nina!  Adding Json is fine for the few geeks among us but don't take away the CSV export! 
Also, please review the many requests for generating a download file in either CSV or XLSX format to make easy to grab and use the data.  Xls would be nice as that would include the data type for the columns.
Thanks!
Toby

>> Also, I've changed how tables are exported and imported. Now, Export Table returns a JSON object containing all the table information.

One of my subgroups has a database of chorus members that lists their names, voice parts, addresses (with separate fields for street, city, ZIP - thankfully not affected by the new maps view, which I would not want to use in this case), and so on. I sometimes need to export that database to a spreadsheet, so exporting to CSV format is useful. I have no idea what to do with a JSON object (I don't even know what it is :-) ). Is it possible to put JSON content in a spreadsheet? If so, how? If not, can the export database function provide options for CSV or JSON output?

Sure, there are lots of kluges, one of which I’m using. The wiki kluge is really no good until we get individually-specified access to wiki pages (as I have also suggested here at some point).

Agreed.

It isn't always a good fit, but one can create a Database table which is Moderator-eyes only. I'd like to be able to do the same with a Wiki page for more free-form information.

But having it be present somewhere a moderator would expect to look for it, as I think you're proposing, would make it even more useful.

moderated Group Notes feature #suggestion

 

I have a vague memory that this suggestion came up in the past: Currently, I am keeping a sort of to-do list for group issues (files to create, members to communicate with, etc.) under my own membership notes. But this kind of thing really doesn't belong there. A dedicated space for "group notes" or "moderator notes" would be very convenient.

I call it partial-word matching. And I'd love to see it too.
 
Not just in Database, but everywhere. The only place in Groups.io that I
know implements partial-word matching right now is the Members list. It
is really needed in the Activity log and Messages as well.

moderated Re: Question about chat feature

 

Is there any way to make the chat messages read automatically using ARIA rolls? So that screen readers can automatically announce messages as they come in?


moderated Question about chat feature

 

Can the chat feature be used to host permanent chat rooms for groups?

3 years ago I didn't even know IO Groups existed. Wish I did.
I now have 2 of my groups moved and in the process of 3 more getting moved and then I will do the last 2 of my groups.
 
I understand about using normal words.
But many members when putting their groups in the database - write it as it is listed in groups IO like tagsforyou instead of Tags For You so it would be great if partial names would be picked up.
 
Well I am not going to sweat the small stuff.
 
At least I know with groups IO, messages go through to the group when they are sent!!!!!!

This was discussed quite awhile back.  If you just use normal words, it won't have a problem, i.e. Tags For You instead of TagsForYou.  When this new version of search was added, one of the restrictions noted was that it won't do partial word searches and it wasn't a high priority addition.  You should have been here about 3 years ago when the search function was really bad!  I'm thankful to have what we do and do my best to make it work.

moderated canceling unresponsive invites?

 

I have quite a bit of pages of invites from a CSV import but many have not replied yet. Is there a way I can bulk cancel all of those invites? I know about the check boxes but I still have to go page by page. Is there a way I can cancel them all at once?

moderated New Google Maps table view and table export

 

Hi All,

For premium groups, if a table has an address column, viewing that table now defaults to a new Google Maps view. I've created an example table so that you can see it in action here:


You can toggle the original list view as well.

Also, I've changed how tables are exported and imported. Now, Export Table returns a JSON object containing all the table information. And there's a new Import Table button that lets you generate a new table from a previous table export. You can still import CSV formatted rows into an existing table using the Import Rows button. Group exports now export tables using the new JSON object format.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Mark

Would it be possible to have the search feature in the database be less sensitive. I guess that is what you could call it. As it is set now in order to bring up a record in the database the wording has to be exact. For instance if I am looking for a group in my database called Tags For You (made up name)  and I type in Tags - nothing comes up because it listed in the database as TagsForYou.
 
It would be really helpful if you can just plug in the search the word Tags or any part of the group's name and then all records with Tags or whatever partial word was put in, what I will be looking for will come up.
 
So many times I am trying to do a search but I don't have the name in the database exactly as it was entered.
 
I am sure other members would benefit from this change as well.
 
Thanks for attention to this matter. Ilene  
 
                 
 


moderated Re: Allow sorting the Members list by Email Status, Role, and Posting Privilege

 

Robert,

... the visible indicators are not accessible to screen readers either
so doing it the above way would be better, accessibility wise.
Just to be clear, I wasn't proposing to get rid of the badges and use separate columns instead. Just proposing that the Email column have more than one sort key.

But an option to show/hide those extra three columns would also be acceptable to me.
